Brady on Cromartie: “I don’t care what he says about me”

AP

Prior to last season’s Jets-Patriots playoff game, Antonio Cromartie went off on Tom Brady, saying, among other things, “F— him, a–hole.” Asked about Brady this week, Cromartie said he’s not backing down from anything he said in the past.

But if Cromartie was hoping to get Brady to engage in a war of words, he’s going to be disappointed.

I don’t care what he says about me,” Brady said when asked about Cromartie today.

Brady did say, however, that he respects both Cromartie and Darrelle Revis as opponents.

“He’s very good, excellent player,” Brady said of Cromartie. “They have two very good corners. They have a bunch of good corners actually. Two that are out there in their regular defense are very good. They’re both fast. They’re both physical. They play well at the line of scrimmage. They’re very disruptive. They lead the league in pass defense, so it kind of tells you everything you want to know about them.”

But when asked about Cromartie saying he doesn’t like the way Brady acts after Patriots touchdowns, Brady reiterated, “I really don’t care what he says.”

  1. “I don’t care what he says about me,” Brady said when asked about Cromartie today.

    —————————————————–

    He doesn’t care unless (of course) Gisele says he should care then…

  2. C’mon Brady, you coward. Say something negative about the guy (particularly something that is true, given that Cromartie is far from a perfect CB). Figures that you don’t have the guts to do it, much like your wussy fan base.

  3. Cromartie has nine kids with seven different women, but Brady’s the a–hole?

    Hypocrite: hyp-o-crite (noun), one who indulges in hypocrisy. Synonyms: Antonio Cromartie

  4. C’mon Brady, you coward. Say something negative about the guy (particularly something that is true, given that Cromartie is far from a perfect CB). Figures that you don’t have the guts to do it.

  5. I guess Cromartie isn’t going to be very happy on Sunday because he will see at least four probably six times Brady “acting” after Patriot touchdowns.

  6. Nor does anyone else in the league care what Cromartie says for that matter. He is the yappy mutt tied up in the yard you have to pass by every day on the way to the bus stop.

  7. God it makes me sick. Brady just gets it, knows how to stay under the radar. Always says things to minimize his talent and the teams talent. He plays the game off the field better than he does on it.

  8. Cro, those aren’t the kind of words a respectable father of 20 illegitimate kids should use..now go mail out your checks, and get ready to get torched.

  9. My ravens have a bye week so I can’t wait to get my popcorn ready for this game. As a ravens fan I hope the keys win so they both become 3 and 2 but its going to be a great chess match with nick back playing at center.

  10. Why should he get in a war of monosyllabic words with Cromartie? If Brady uses adult words, he might need to make them in picture form for Antonio.

  11. I agree with Cromartie, naturally. Though I’m quite positive that if any of our corners are going to be abused, beaten and taken to the woodshed by Brady, it’s gonna be him. Cro really is an idiot.

  12. maybe Cromartie should keep his eyes more on his man and less on his obvious man-crush Brady and they wouldn’t score as many touchdowns.

  13. Cromartie’s just mad that he can make a play on the ball without committing pass interference in some way. Why should Brady care what he says? The only reason he’s still on the team is because they couldn’t land Asomough.

  14. I guess this writer is so desperate to overcome writers block that he is digging up stuff said LAST YEAR. Desperately trying to appeal to the Pat fans for hits…

    Meh, keeping your mouth shut doesn’t make your passes any more accurate or your receivers get open easier. What he does off the field is irrelevant other than studying football, which he obviously does a lot of.

  16. I used to hate Brady too. But the way this guy plays, you just can’t help but respect the guy’s incredible ability.
    Cromartie on the other hand give black men a bad name. Talk about stereo typical…..

  17. I’m now setting at the over/under on touchdowns Brady throws to receivers covered by Cromartie on Sunday at 2 1/2.

  18. “The game is an afternoon start, that should give Cromartie plenty of time to get lubed up.”

  19. What will Cromartie do after football, ya know, when he goes on to his life’s work (thanks Chuck Noll) after this game?

    I hate to put down any real workers or jobs as any pure work is good work. But really, will Antonio be a CPA or maybe a nuclear physicist? Cromartie is so lucky there is a thing called sports and a welfare nation like the USA. Otherwise, he’d be major league screwed.

  20. I wouldn’t care about what Cromartie says either… I’m no Pats fan, but Brady handles himself as one of the best in the league. Cromartie’s just tired because he has to stay up all night tending to his 9 children…zing!

  21. For all the insults thrown Cromartie’s way for his kids, Pats fans have little to say about Brady dumping his pregnant gf Bridget M. for a supermodel. Umm..that makes his CA son a bastard, and there are quite a few women who consider Brady to be the same.

  22. Gisele Bundchen is average looking at best. Curious taste from some of you cats.

    And the Cromartie/children jokes got old at least 3 years ago, half these cats have not an original joke if their lives depended on it.

    Brady is unstoppable. Haters gonna hate.

    Sorry but Brady is stoppable, just ask the Defensive backs of the Buffalo Bills.

    Go Bills!!!!

  24. @waxedagain

    Brady broke up with his “pregnant GF” before he knew she was pregnant. He also takes full responsibility for the kid, supports him, visits him, etc.

    Trying to compare that to a guy with 9 kids from 8 women, who also has a hard time remembering their names is laughable. But I guess it should be expected from a hater.

  25. Marsha Brady is too busy brushing her hair, “servicing” the zebras for special treatment and ironing the penalty flag she carries in her back pocket to talk trash about anybody!

    Real badasses like this guy call people wussys.

    That sure isn’t cowardly.

    Pot meet kettle.

  29. Why don’t the Patriot fanboys stop telling Cro to “pay his child support” when there hasn’t been one reported instance of action being levied against him because he’s a deadbeat.

    The guy is a #2 corner on a 2-2 team. It seems like every time an opposing offense drops back to pass, he commits a penalty and that’s the best you chowderheads got? That’s ok the last time you guys gloated on these boards before a home game against the Jets, the Pats went home for the winter.

  30. @ waxedagain… This Pats fan has something to say.

    I think you are throwing a red herring. Tom is not the one who asked for a new contract because he needed money for his child support like Cromartie. Tom’s situation is way different. Tom started dating Gisele and THEN Moynahan (the ex) announced she was pregnant. The hypocrisy in all the “uproar ” over Brady is that Hollywood couples have babies out of wedlock all the time and no one bats an eye so I didn’t see why people got upset.

    Besides, it is totally irrelevant. If Cromartie were a Born Again Christian, and such, then maybe Brady’s out of wedlock children would be relevant, but Cromartie has the morals of an alleycat, so of course, he is going to take a lot of heat.

    No one cares what he says anyway

  31. @waxedagain: Not that it will change your mind any, but check your facts. The two mutually split before the child was born and before Brady started dating Gisele.

    As for the New Jersey Green Beans opening their yaps yet again: Yawwwwn …

    Nine kids vs. One kid, and you want folks to call out Brady? …. and I’ll bet Tom pays his child support, on time, no issues.
    Can the same be said of Cromartie?

    Brady > Cromartie ……. probably in every way, except of course, the number of illegitimate kids fathered or women left behind.

  34. How do you know Brady left his wife for Giselle. Sometimes marriages don’t work out especially at a young age. One kid with bridget and one kid with Gisele. Brady would be in his 50s to catch up to cromartie

    ______________________________

    I’m a steelers fan but I call BS……..he’s a good father who spends time with all his children and pays his child support…… and he just happens to be one of the best QB’s to play the game and he’s married to a supermodel….don’t hate Brady cause u wish u were him.

  36. Right, keep us updated as soon as Brady has to borrow $500,000 from his new boss just to be allowed to LEAVE the state after being traded.
    Cromartie is bacteria; a total failure as a man.

    How could you possibly be so dumb as to confuse “not getting married” with “not taking care of your children?” Seriously, you are either dumbfoundingly stupid or dishonest.

  38. Scoring touchdowns is Brady’s job. On Sundays he goes to work. No big deal, no cause to celebrate. 4 TDs in a game?? Business as usual!

    Tom Brady takes the high road and his play does his talking. 😀

  39. For all the insults thrown Cromartie’s way for his kids, Pats fans have little to say about Brady dumping his pregnant gf Bridget M. for a supermodel. Umm..that makes his CA son a bastard, and there are quite a few women who consider Brady to be the same.
    ==================================
    Brady and Bridget broke up before she realized she was pregnant. More to the point, no one has ever accused Brady of ducking his responsibilities as a father (he’s never needed a pay advance to cover child support, for example) and I don’t think Bidget M. is exactly hard up for money with or without Brady.

    Lets go to the scoreboard

    Brady-2 kids by 2 women (1 of whom he is married to)
    Cromartie-9 kids by 7 women (none of whom he is married to)

    Nice try though!!

    It’s called class the Jets and Eagles should try exercising it at some-point in their tenure.

  43. Apparently you DO care, pal.

    Funny that AC gets beat up for all his kids out of wedlock. Seems like my man Tom knows a bit about that too, LOL. Got to wonder how much Gisele likes babysitting for his “other” kid while he’s out playing his little games on Sunday.

  44. Of course, Brady talks trash. Instead of words, he uses plays to show it.

    We all know what’s going to happen. Brady’s going to pick on Cromarite like he did last year. No point of throwing towards Revis. Cromarite will look like a practice squad CB, again.

  45. i am not a jets fan or Pat fans, but one thing i do know, you must not give brady any fire before the game. he needs to worry about covering his man on sunday because brady will target him for talking all that trash, whats the point anyway brady 3 superbowls, jets none. anyway Go ravens next week lol

  46. Why would Brady care what that idiot has to say.

    He’s married to arguably the most beautiful woman in the world.

    She’s rich.

    He’s rich.

    He has multiple Championships.

    Cromartie has tons of illegitimate children from ghetto ho’s.

    Brady has one illegitimate kid.

  47. OMG waxe…Brady had a child with his long time girl friend and then didn’t marry her…shocking. I can see how you can compare him with an absolute scumbag that doesn’t even know the names of his children. grow up douche

  48. no idea y cromartie is talkin he always gettin burned anyway. im sure deion branch will get him this week AGAIN

  49. Seriously though, Jets fans/players are almost the worst (*Second only to Eagles fans/players… and just ahead of Raiders fans.)

  50. Really, if you are Tom Brady, why would you care about that guy talking smack. You’ve won championships, date better looking women, have plenty more cash than him and when you retire you won’t go broke and end up living in a van cause you’re paying alimony and child care cost for an entire Walmart worth of people.

  51. Should be a great game..

    All fear Stevan Ridely….give him the da*n ball and get outta his way!

    SCHOTTY MUST GO!!! SCHOTTY MUST GO!!!

  52. “How the hell does this dummy get TWO identical and thus equally uneducated/ ignorant comments onto this message board?!”
    —————————————————

    A – he says nothing negative about PFT or the writer of this article.

    and 2 if it ad hominem they’ll print it (with the exception of conflicts of A above)

  53. Brady is classy and doesn’t run his mouth like child poppin Cromartie… What a moron… that doesn’t just make him look bad but it also makes his team look bad

  54. Funny that AC gets beat up for all his kids out of wedlock. Seems like my man Tom knows a bit about that too, LOL. Got to wonder how much Gisele likes babysitting for his “other” kid while he’s out playing his little games on Sunday

    ———————————————————-

    I don’t think it has much to do with the fact that they are out of wedlock, just sayin the dude has 9 kids by 8 baby mamas. When you can’t remember their names on top of that, you got a problem. It’s called straight up trash.

  55. Everyone of you on here blasting Cromartie for saying he doesn’t like Someone , all of you act just like him on the boards every F’n day ..All I see is I hate this player I hate that coach ,I hate that fan base Etc..Looks like a bunch of Hypocrites that just dont understand how F’n stupid they’re making themselves look!!Lets not forget that Mr.Brady fired that I hate Jets last year …WTF ‘s the diffrence?

  56. my daddy can say what he wants bout that no good QB. P.S. to daddy can you “make it rain” for my birthday again.

  57. Brady = Multi Super Bowl rings and Gisele.
    Cromartie = No rings and multi child support payments including team loans in order to pay them.

    I declare Tom the winner there.

  58. Has it occured to any of you commenters here that this blog is trying to portray the NFL as a reality TV show? Nothing of any importance happens between Sundays….it’s obvious.

  59. Bozosforall is a Steelers fan who is mad that the Patriots destroy his favorite team all the time. I’d be angry at Brady too if I were him.

  60. While I haven’t liked Brady for years, he still goes out and wins, and seems to do it every year no matter who is on the team with him.

    As a professional, Brady doesn’t seem to need bulletin board material to get motivated, he just goes and does his job. While Cromartie, as well as others, are trying to hype themselves up, and still can’t seem to win.

  61. show me QB that doesn’t celebrate after a TD. Give me a break. If it wasn’t for non call holding the jets CBs wouldn’t be as good. They hold all the time.

  62. gimmeabruschi says: Oct 5, 2011 2:43 PM

    In 10 years nobody will remember who Cromartie was. But Brady will be legendary forever.

    except for the mention in 10 years that Cromartie has filed for bankruptcy

  63. “They’re both physical.”

    No, lack of physicality is why Cromartie
    was shown the door in San Diego.

    ___________________________

    p.s. @edgerules,
    Not sure why you assumed that Cromartie
    isn’t a big time Christian but you’re dead
    wrong on that one. You can’t talk to the
    guy for 5 minutes without knowing it. He may
    not have a track record that some of y’all
    think he SHOULD, given his faith,
    but Antonio’s all about God

    WRONG again, mrsconnors. Told you before, that I wasn’t a Steelers fan (though I have to respect the fact that they have won SIX Super Bowls, TWICE as many as the Pats did*.

    And ALL TIME, the Steelers have SIX rings, twice as many as the Pats’ THREE*.

    Once again, you FAIL, mrsconnors.

  66. @chas88 – so, Brady is less “straight up trash” because he has fewer abandoned children than AC?

    Whatever. Shut up and win something that counts Brady. ESPN is so hilarious this year – every analyst that mentions Brady says I “but he doesn’t win playoff games anymore”.

  67. How many Super Bowl trophies does Cromartie possess…….

    Just as I suspected…0.

    You can say something about the guy who has three when you get one. Until then, enjoy being the second best D back on the team. And that is being generous.

  68. blah blah blah effin blah.

    “Number1Bozo” just says stupid sh*t to get you all to respond.
    deep down he loves TBrady and the Pats, Redsox, Bruins and Celtics. He is a Boston fan thu and thru

    jokes on u!

  69. waxedagain – Brady didn’t know that Bridget Moynahan was pregnant until about a month after they broke up – she got pregnant the weekend they broke up. He has never denied his paternity, pays all kinds of support and sees his son frequently. He has NEVER denied he is the boy’s father and is as good a father as he can be.

    GIVE ME A BREAK. Revis uses the jam effectively but also stays step for step with the fastest wideouts in the NFL without having to hold. Another Patriot fanboy trying to knock the best defensive player in the NFL. You want to knock Cromartie? Thats’s fine. But Revis > any Patriot defender.

    I also got a big kick out of the previous posters calling Jet fans the worst fans in the NFL. Please. Patriot fans are bigger bandwagon fans then any Yankee fan post 1992. You guys wouldn’t have known who the late great Mosi Tatupu was if he spit in your soup. BRADY GOT BOOED OFF THE FIELD IN THE PLAYOFF GAME LAST YEAR. That’s all you need to know.

  71. @chas88 – so, Brady is less “straight up trash” because he has fewer abandoned children than AC?

    ———————————————————-
    Where do you get the abandonment thing? It’s pretty obvious Brady takes care of his son and sees him often. AC, on the other hand, probably does not. If you can’t remember their names, you’re probably not doing a very good job. Oh, and seriously, yeah it does make AC look even worse with his record of babymaking. One mistake….ok, it happens. 9 with 8 different women…Ridiculous and makes you look like an absolute joke. Deal with it.

  74. Cromartie doesn’t like the way Brady acts after a touchdown,wait a minute at least he doesn’t go running around the field playing like he is a dumb-ass airplane and after the game there isn’t going to be a “J” on their helmets because “ets-ets-ets over!!!! And cry baby Ryan will be blurting his favorite limited vocabulary words “f###-me” on national TV as he always does. Enough said.

    You’re right. Brady can’t match Cromartie’s record of two glorious AFC Championship Game appearances.

  76. @chas88 – “where do you get the abandonment thing?”
    —————————————–

    I don’t know – Brady knocks up a chick, and shacks up with another chick a couple months later? Call it what you want – he ditched a pregnant mom and his own kid. Pretty low-down if you ask me.

  77. @fmwarner – “Brady can’t match Cromartie’s record of two glorious AFC Championship Game appearances”.

    ————————————-

    Not in 2009-2010 he couldn’t – that’s for sure!

    How many Boston “fans” left those home playoff losses by halftime? Looked like they couldn’t get out of there fast enough. They put LA fans to shame with the speed at which they emptied out that stadium.

  78. Season ticket holder since 1985. By the way, who calls anyone a ‘cat’ anymore. Did you play bebop in 1952?

  79. This right here is why I like it when the Pats score that extra “F U” touchdown at the end of the game on these guys.

    (Though, admittedly, with their pitiful defense, they might need that touchdown to win 31-27 this year.)

  80. rexismybff – Brady found out Bridget was pregnant a month after they broke up. He has never dodged his responsibilities as a father, pays full support for his son and spends as much time with him as is possible.

    To say he ditched Bridget knowing she was pregnant is incorrect – you should know what you’re talking about before you mouth off.

  81. @ rexismybff,

    Umm, there is a difference between getting your ex girlfriend pregnant and having 5 children by 5 different women in just one year.

    Are you that obtuse?

  82. Not in 2009-2010 he couldn’t – that’s for sure!

    How many Boston “fans” left those home playoff losses by halftime? Looked like they couldn’t get out of there fast enough. They put LA fans to shame with the speed at which they emptied out that stadium.

    This is beyond funny coming from a Jets fan. It seems they don’t realize that the rest of the league views them as a joke. They’re the Cincinnati Bengals in green uniforms but…if you can imagine…they actually have fewer achievements.
    Two AFC East titles in the past FORTY years and their greatest run ever was losing back-to-back Conference title games.
    Basically Vanderbilt football in the SEC.
    Your franchise is an NFL punchline.

  83. The thing that seperates Brady from these losers, is he does his talking on the field, and it shows. That’s how it should be, maybe if the Jets shut their mouth for a second, they would win a game.
